Uyghur Uyghur, a Turkic language spoken in Central Asia, includes some verbal suffixes that are actually contracted forms of compound verbs (serial verbs). For instance, sëtip alidu (sell-manage, "manage to sell") is usually written and pronounced sëtivaldu, with the two words forming a contraction and the [p] leniting into a [v] or [w].{{ safesubst:#invoke:Unsubst||$N=OR |date=__DATE__ |$B= {{#invoke:Category handler|main}}[original research?] }}
